I know there are a lot of you out there who were tracking this story even before it was an actual news story, and have been praying for a Navy SEAL from Montana who was badly wounded in Afghanistan last month.   The family of Navy SEAL Bo Reichenbach have now released a statement. 

KTVQ-TV has the story:

24-year-old Bo Reichenbach, a Special Operations 2 Navy SEAL was critically injured by an improvised explosive device on July 17th. His family prefers not to elaborate on his injuries, but tells Q2, Bo was awarded the Purple Heart just two days after arriving back in the U.S.

The Billings Gazette also has a full story, including details of a benefit account that has been set up for anyone who would like to help out the family during this time of need. 

A benefit fund has been set up to assist Bo Reichenbach in his recovery.

Donations may be made at the First Interstate Bank Billings Heights branch,  730 Main St., Suite 100, Billings, Mont., 59105. Donations may also be mailed to Dana and Jenn Brumwell, 2105 Concord Drive, Billings, MT, 59102. Checks should be made to the Bo Reichenbach Benefit Fund.

Meanwhile, you may recall the news from Mother’s Day of this year that a Deputy from Sheridan County in Northeastern Montana was wounded after responding to a call.   

Here’s a note detailing an upcoming fundraiser on behalf of Sheridan County Deputy Doug Gibson that was sent to us from Bonnie Simon at KATQ Radio in Plentywood. 

On Mothers Day of this year, Sheridan Co. Deputy Doug Gibson was injured in the line of duty in Plentywood, during a call to a local bar. Our area communities are coming together for a benefit for him on Aug 18th in Plentywood town square. Along with the summer meal, there will also be an auction of donated items from area businesses and individuals, as well as family friendly activities.
